Fact or Fiction: TE Adrien Robinson's stats

Posted Jun 6, 2014

Giants.com writers debate four interesting topics in our Fact or Fiction series

Adrien Robinson will have the most receptions among the Giants’ tight ends in 2014.

  • MICHAEL EISEN: Fact - Robinson has looked good this spring and I believe he will take advantage of his opportunity and be a contributor this season.

  • JOHN SCHMEELK: Fiction - I haven’t bought in yet. In his first two NFL seasons Robinson hasn’t been able to consistently stay healthy or play at a high level for me to make this prediction. Both Kellen Davis and Daniel Fells have far more experience and production at the NFL level.

  • DAN SALOMONE: Fiction - He’s shown good hands in OTAs, and Tom Coughlin even mentioned his lack of mental errors so far. But we’ve seen these flashes before, only to see Robinson not suit up on game day for various reasons, including health. He has to prove it in live action first.

Trindon Holliday will score first as a receiver before he does as a returner for the Giants.

  • MICHAEL EISEN: Fiction - He’ll take it to the house with a punt return. I’m not sure he’s going to get much time at wide receiver.

  • JOHN SCHMEELK: Fiction - This doesn’t mean that I don’t think Holliday will be in the mix as a receiver, but in my opinion, he is still fifth or sixth on the depth chart behind Victor Cruz, Rueben Randle, Odell Beckham Jr., Jerrel Jernigan and Mario Manningham, if healthy. Though I could see some interesting end-arounds or reverses with Holliday on offense.

  • DAN SALOMONE: Fact - Fact. I was surprised when I looked up his stats and saw he has just two catches and one rushing attempt in his entire career since being drafted into the NFL in 2010. While none were for touchdowns, he’s such a unique talent at 5-foot-5 that Ben McAdoo could carve out a package that includes him, especially with all the quick passes and screens we’ve seen so far in OTAs.

The Giants will use fewer three-safety looks without Will Hill.

  • MICHAEL EISEN: Fiction - Perry Fewell likes the scheme too much to abandon it. With Antrel Rolle and Stevie Brown – plus Quintin Demps, Nat Berhe and Cooper Taylor – the Giants have candidates to fill the roles in a three-safety look.

  • JOHN SCHMEELK: Fiction - I don’t think the package was designed for Will Hill. They used it a lot with Deon Grant when he was here as well. I do believe, however, we will see a lot more traditional three-cornerback nickel packages than we will see three-safety packages because Walter Thurmond is such a good slot corner.

  • DAN SALOMONE: Fiction - Perry Fewell used the look before Will Hill and he will do so after him. With that said, it’s more about the extra defensive back on the field, whether it’s a safety or cornerback. The Giants have quality options there, starting with Walter Thurmond III in the slot. That role grows every year in the NFL.

Quintin Demps will be the primary kick returner come Week 1.

  • MICHAEL EISEN: Fiction - I’m choosing Odell Beckham Jr. or Trindon Holliday.

  • JOHN SCHMEELK: Fact - This is a tough one because I think it is a toss-up right now between Demps and Trindon Holliday. I’ll go with Demps only because I think he already has a roster spot as depth at safety, so it makes it more likely he will be on the final roster. I’ve heard rave reviews about his ability as a kick returner.

  • DAN SALOMONE: Fact - It’s tough to tell much on the outside in OTAs, but Demps has been one of the players standing out to me. He brings a lot to the table, and that will make him attractive when rosters are finalized. As far as returning kicks, there’s no messing around with Demps. He wastes no time in seeing the hole and then hitting it. Again, you can’t tell much in non-contact OTAs, but his instincts jump out at you. Plus, he has the experience and production to back that up.
